And, finally, the PM spoke about what was once called “an encouraging oil show in northern Belize”. Well those hopeful words went out over two months ago – and it’s not so encouraging anymore. The PM explained:..
Hon. Dean Barrow - Prime Minister of Belize
"That's not going as well as we would have hoped. They are having great difficulty getting the oil to flow in a way that would confirm or help them to confirm of the volume is there - that's in respect to the well that has already been dug. They are now drilling a second well and they are going to do a directional drilling, instead of straight vertical well - this will be a kind of horizontal well, almost and they are hoping that that would help to solve the problem."
